Updated Bend Telephone Prefix List

Years ago I posted a Bend local phone prefix list, because it was getting harder and harder to keep track of what was a local call and what wasn't. I updated that list today with another bunch of prefixes, and also included the cities they're based out of for folks like Simone who can't call to Redmond from Lapine on her home phone without calling long distance, but can call Bend (at least when I first posted the list).

Why was I updating this list? Well I was playing with Google Voice, and looking to try to get a better number as my Google Voice number is less-than-memorable. Since we can't port numbers to Google Voice yet (though as of today, we can use their voicemail services on our existing numbers), if I was going to be using Google Voice at all, I wanted a nifty number, and wanted a number that was local. While they'll tell you where the number's based, it's nice to have another place to confirm it.

So if you're in the same boat as me, check out the updated list (and this is going to get even more complicated when the new area code comes to town and 10-digit dialing is required).
